If anyone is interested the name of the social group is The extra mile for GR vets. Unfortunately this social group is only for the 25K.  Thank See More

EVENT DATE May 13, 2017

THE STORY:

The Grand Rapids Home for Veterans is home to 450 veterans with service ranging from WWII to the Gulf war. With 90 acres of land including the cemetery, veterans have a wide range of outdoor and indoor facilities. While this is a great place for veterans the staff is only at 80% of what it needs to be to fully support those that served our country. Requiring long overtime for both paid staff and volunteers. Each year prescriptions are filled late or Christmas tree stars with veterans' Christmas wishes go unfulfilled. By donating you are easing the financial burden of those trying to help our aging heros. The money raised from my run can go to a wide range of things including: general repairs and upkeep, food, wages for workers, etc. I am running to show support for those that do not get the care they need. I am running to show that Grand Rapids has not forgotten about its veterans.
